Imperial Fizz

One is tempted to try to make a connection between the spirits used in the Imperial Fizz and the scope of 19th century empires. You can say that rum and whiskey were the spirits that colonized America, for instance. On the other hand, the word Imperial denotes a drink that is stronger than others, like Imperial IPA. It is a highly fortified drink and probably more suited to Biggie Size drinkers or, in the past, royalty.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey
  • 1 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling water
Combine all ingredients except sparkling water in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass full of ice. Top with sparkling water. (Lemon twist recommended).
